[Photo] Mesut Ozil Posts Picture Celebrating His Birthday – No Sign Of Injury

By on October 16, 2013

Like many Arsenal fans, I feared the worst when I heard the news that Mesut Ozil was withdrawn shortly before the end of Germany’s 5-3 win over Sweden last night but judging by the picture below, he’s doing just fine.

Ozil bagged a goal and an assist during the game on Tuesday but headed straight down the tunnel in the 87th minute after being forced off with an apparent knee injury.

Contrasting reports emerged on Wednesday with some newspapers suggesting he was going to be ruled out with a hamstring strain while others claimed it was nothing more than minor bruising and he should feature against Norwich on Saturday.

We’re still waiting for official news regarding his fitness, but Ozil gave us a hint that he’s OK after posting a picture of him standing in front of his birthday presents – which were given to him by his partner Mandy Capristo – with no obvious signs of any serious injury.

The play-maker turned 25 on Wednesday and arrived back in London during the afternoon to celebrate with his family, and with any luck he’ll be back on the pitch on Saturday celebrating another three points with a win over Norwich.

    Hope he’s ok. But let give him some rest. The season is loooong.
    Playing and celebrating is 2 different things. Even if you are injured, you still want to enjoy moreover with a girl like what he’s got..:)
    But give others some match time and let the regulars some time off. It’s a home game. The Gunners should be fine.(touchwood…:0)
